When Andy (gfadvm) posted his version of lazy Susan without hardware, I took it as a challenge to try. That and the fact that I wanted a couple for this weekends show.

These are made from scraps of 2” thick Ash slabs. They are about 13” x 13” with several coats of tung Oil. I used a 1-1/2 poplar dowel and 4 nylon washers for spacers.

Thanks for looking

Nice lazt susans Monte…They shouls sell easily…
Two shows that are 10 days each…Wow, that would wear me out fast…! The longest show I did was 4 days and for me that was too long. I prefer a 2 day show.
